System Notes:
  1.  The Rentec Direct editor will attempt to maintain formatting; however, depending on the source sometimes the document formatting may need to be manually corrected. 
  2. If the formatting does not carry over well, it's often best to paste without formatting using CTRL-SHIFT-V instead, then do the formatting within the Rentec Direct editor.  

How to convert an existing .pdf document into another file type

If you have an existing .pdf document that isn't formatting as well as you'd like, try converting the file into another format such as a .docx document first, then copy and paste.  Convert PDF to Docx  is a useful website that converts .pdf files into .docx files. 

Frequently Asked Questions About Importing Forms

  • Why does some data not appear in the printed or preview document?
    • Depending on the file type, there may have been some embedded spaces, images, or other formatting in the original document that is rendering extra spaces, lines, or pages. Inside the editor, simply delete those extra spaces and pages before saving your new custom document.
  • What file types work best?
    • .docx file types will render information the best. (.pdf can be used, you will want to remove formatting prior to uploading)
  • Can I start over on the form if I don't like the format?
    • If you do not like how the import appears, there is no need to save - simply use the Cancel Button and try importing a different file type for a better result.
Helpful Tips:
  • Import files without graphics and add them in after (during customization) for best results.
  • If formatted information isn't lining up, try reducing the font size and if needed, the line height
